Return to Ireland - Fairy trees

I've been watching for fairy trees and know them now. They are frequently seen on the side of the road or in the middle of a farmer's field. Legend has it that it is bad luck to cut them down.

Apparently the construction of an Irish highway had to be rerouted so to save a fairy tree.

The Hawthorn tree is currently blooming.

On Sunday the priest at Mass adorned the altar with some branches. Though he told us the branches were from the Hawthorn tree which is the usual type of fairy tree.
